    004 - How Many Priorities is Too Many Priorities?

    Priorities are the non-negotiables in your life – the things that you do daily without fail and schedule all other activities around. But there is a finite amount of time in each day. That's why we believe having just three priorities is the sweet spot. Any more than 3 priorities and you don't actually have ANY priorities. You just have a bunch of things you're trying to do at the expense of all the other things.
